Nice flavors in the porter
Look: dark (almost black) with a finger brown head that dissipates almost immediately into a fine lace. No trail lacing as we drank it. Smell a bit Baltic in notes with some gingerbread and honey. Taste: front end sweet, roast and Baltic notes. Mid we get heavy gingerbread, honey in the nose with some trailing vanilla. I don’t get cinnamon, Bren gets some cinnamon (what she calls a higher note) on the backend, but I’m kinda like eh... Feel: definitely a porter and not a stout. The carbonation sticks around as it warmed and had a decent mellow vanilla (even and trailing) mouthfeel as it goes down.
Simply supurb. Let this one warm to about 50, 55 degrees and sip slowly. Ginger on the nose and really coming through with aftertaste. Just the right amount of cinnamon. These guys nailed it!
Like eating a gingerbread cookie! Very nice dessert beer. Just enough ABV to keep it interesting. Much better than expected!
Was on the lighter side and surprisingly 9.2%
Crushable stout with a great gingerbread taste
Like a liquid gingerbread man. Drink a cookie while making cookies.
Decent, but slightly underwhelming. I expected a bit richer of a flavor for as high abv that it is
This was an amazing Christmas night with dessert.
God darn it. It should not take 10 mins to open a bottle of beer with a ridiculous WAX seal. Changing my 4 star rating to 2 stars because of this real inconvenience. You suck. Fix this with a pull tab release or STOP IT with the cement wax everywhere. I’m right. Do not dispute me.
